B.C. Rich WMD Warbeast Electric Guitar OnyxToday’s featured guitar is the B.C. Rich WMD Warbeast Electric Guitar Onyx. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

The B.C. Rich WMD Warbeast features maple neck-through construction, a beveled nato mahogany body, and A Floyd Rose Original locking 7-string tremolo lets you execute the most subtle tremolo or wildest dive-bombing effects and return to perfect tuning every time. tremolo. With its Rockfield Fat Ass pickup in the bridge, Mafia pickup in the neck position, and aggressive red pinstripes, there is no mistaking the sonic damage you can inflict with this WMD.

Neck-Through Construction
Neck Through construction is used on the WMD Warbeast because it provides the best possible sustain, resonance, comfort and access to higher frets. Neck-through has long been considered the premium construction method for high-end guitars. This construction starts with a long piece (or pieces) of premium North American maple. That piece runs from the tip of the headstock to the strap button on the opposite end of the guitar. This means that the headstock, fingerboard, pickups and bridge all are mounted to this single sound foundation. Sonically it is a difference you can hear. The neck-through construction also allows deeper cutaways, providing comfort no bolt-on or set-neck could offer.

Rockfield Pickups – Mafia & Fat Ass
Bridge Pickups – Fat Ass
Aggressive in its own right, the Rockfield FAT ASS bridge pickup was designed for a specific group players in mind: those with crazy, super acrobatic playing styles. The ones at the gig that make everything look so effortless and easy. As you watch in amazement you say, “Man I need to practice” or, “That’s it, man, I quit!” This pickup’s custom designed bobbins house larger pole pieces that help transfer string vibration from pulls, bends and leads so the user gets less tonal drop off, better articulation and note definition. The Rockfield FAT ASS has a well balanced overall tone that is mean and bold with major sustain, huge bottom end and cutting mids and highs that jump out at you. Each note is full and rings true from this pickup while you take advantage of a look that is just plain mean and in your face.

Neck Pickups
The neck version of the Mafia pickup is just as full sounding as the bridge position, without taking away from what has already been accomplished. Very minor modifications to the overall design and design concept of this pickup gives it punchy, bold tone with the same aggressive characteristics as the bridge version. A tad brighter with a little less output really takes this pickup into the smooth and warm realm of the tonal spectrum. All while maintaining that balanced bite and in your face aggressive tone that the mafia is known for!

Flat Top
The WMD Warbeast is constructed with a flat top. The flat top styling gives a bold and pristine look to the edge of the instrument’s shape. The binding on a flat top finishes off the edge cleanly and gives a sleek and clean look to the instrument.

A Little SG History

In 1961, the Les Paul was redesigned with a thinner body and 2 sharp cutaway horns that making the upper frets more accessible while lowering production costs. The new guitar was popular, but Les Paul the guitarist did not like it and asked to have his name removed. Gibson renamed the model the “SG” which was short for “solid guitar”. Though Les Paul’s name was officially removed from the model in 1961, the plastic Les Paul nameplates (positioned between the rhythm pickup and fingerboard) were in abundance in the Gibson factory and SG models having these nameplates were built and sold by Gibson up to end of 1963. SGs have been the choice of world-class artists such as Pete Townsend, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, and Angus Young.
